obama term begins, he's getting a dividend. mr. senegal and the rest of the costco board voted this week to give themselves a special dividend, a 3 billion dollar christmas gift for shareholders that will allow them to be taxed at the current rate of 15% rather than next year's rate of over 40%. and costco is just one of many companies making these one-time cash payouts in a move that will save stocks holders like senegal unless in dividend taxes. and so, mary, turns out maybe taxes do influence investor behavior. what's the meaning of the great cashout of 2012? >> well, don't tax you, don't tax me, tax the guy behind the tree. >> paul: russell long, former late senator. >> exactly. and what you see here are very wealthy people who can, you know, engineer ways to avoid taxes, meanwhile, what he's-- the medicine he's suggesting for people who are starting to do better, people who say, make $200,000, maybe working their whole life. they're the ones who are going to get hit with the obama taxes and really, i mean, you look at that and you think a normal human being with, you know, would be
the fiscal cliff has all americans worried. after meeting with president obama this week with his fellow governors, my next guest says a failure to reach a solution would send his state into a recession. joining me now is utah governor gary herbert, a member of the national governors association executive committee. governor, welcome. >> thank you. it's an honor to be with you. >> i'm so glad you're here. i want to get your thoughts from inside the room there in person. did president obama make the case for his plan differently than he's been making it publicly? >> well, i think he knew that we were a bipartisan group. we had republicans and democrat governors there. did not expect us to come out and support one plan or the other, which we said going in we would not do. but we were grateful that he actually asked for our advice and our input. states and governors too often have been ignored, have been kind of an afterthought. and frankly we think that if congress and washington would look to the states and the governors they would develop better policy. so we were honored to be there to
. >> 's the one that was president obama just weeks after he took office in 2009 at the opening of the fiscal responsibility summit. today we owe more than $16 trillion, and he wants to raise the debt ceiling to spend even more money that we honestly don't have. our next guest says that both sides are to blame equally. charlie is a columnist for the washington times. okay, they cannot be equal. who is more to blame? the president or congress. i would make the argument that obama is clearly the one. certainly democrats are probably little bit more to blame. two years ago, democrats ran the entire town. they had a filibuster proof majority in the senate. they control the house and white house. if they wanted to cut spending at that time, they could have done so. republicans -- they could've done it over every republican objection and they could've gotten everything they wanted. they didn't do that. but i do think it's worth remembering that if you go back 10 years, president bush, and the republican-controlled congress, then acted too expensive for us that were not paid for. the t
president obama will have inauguration in a couple of weeks. from the speaker bearing brooks brother to devil wears prada. anna winter raised money to get president obama re-elect and it could be paying off for her now. bloomberg news is reporting that she is on the short list to be the next ambassador to the u.k. or to france. a hat tip to the "new york post," owned by the parent company of the network. she was trying to audition by fundraisers and glossy spreads in the magazine. what do you think? quid pro quo? >> dana: yeah, i do. she is an accomplished woman. if you have a movie made that says you're the devil you'v youe something. >> greg: they made one for you. >> dana: i'll reserve comment whether she deserves it and would be a good ambassador. we talked about this eight months ago with a big event here. someone slipped it out she would love to be the u.k. ambassador. i think it could happen. >> andrea: do you think it's real or her floating her own name for job? >> greg: i would like to send her away. england sent us victoria beckham. six-figure exchange program. i could have
as presented by ambassador rice and president obama before an election. >> the meeting with the senators getting all kinds of media attention and might have pressed for the press to get more from the white house as jay leno noted. >> and this week, cbs news became the first news organization besides fox to ask president obama who changed the benghazi talking points? >> yeah, this is very dangerous for the white house, and suddenly start asking real questions. >> so, what about it, jim, if jay leno is asking that question, does it mean that the press might be finally catching on? >> i think a couple of things are happening here, first of all, the campaign of sort of race baiting against john mccain led by richard wolf and tour, don't forget the accent mark. and the meeting with rice went badly and susan collins prides herself as a moderate thinks worse of you, you've done a bad job on the your presentation. and adam credo, the new website called the washington free beacon has millions of dollars in investments of companies linked to iran and rattled off the list and how she got confirmed
. >> it was week. >> president obama has said that he has pen in hand and he's prepared to sign the middle income tax cuts. >> you have a president of the united states that has the mighty pen. you bailed out the banks. bail out the american people that don't have homes for the holidays. >> in his second term i hope he will offer fresh ideas and serious leadership. >> we need a response from the white house. >> i'm hea here to tell you that nobody wants to get this done more than me. >> it's true that president obama won reelection and i congratulate him on his victory, but on january 20th, he'll face a stagnant economy and a fiscal mess. >> our people in an overwhelming way supported the reelection of this president, and there ought to be a quid pro quo and you ought to exercise leadership on that. >> you want the answer to solving the fiscal cliff? we put an offer on the table. the president now has to engage. >> you might even say he'll inherit these problems. >> the president is going away for christmas. he's going to hawaii for 20 something days. where am i going to be? where are my neighbor
the so-called cliff. last week's survey found that 21% of americans would blame president obama and the democrats. 23% say they would blame the republicans. 52% would be annoyed with both parties equally. is it really clear at this point who would be blamed? >> i think the -- >> i'm sorry. excuse me. >> it's okay. i think members of congress bear the brunt of this, especially the house. they're going to be the odd man out. i think in the end voters, if the deal does not happen, the house will carry a lot of blame for it. >> two member numbers very imp 39.6%, 35%. the president would like 39.6%. i want both of you to take a listen to something speaker boehner said friday in response to a question about raising tax rates. take a listen. >> can you see some way that you could agree to tax rate increase and protect small businesses at the same time, maybe going with the 37% or some middle ground on -- >> there are a lot of things that are possible. to put the revenue the president seeks on the table. but none of it's going to be possible if the president insists on his position, in
™ system by starbucks. >>> president obama could name his new secretary of state pick this week and all signs point to u.n. ambassador susan rice as the top contender but republicans. >> signs of backing off their opposition whether or not she would survive a nomination fight is anybody's guess. >> don't know whether he should take on fight north. i know this. that what has happened to susan rice is unfair. >> i don't think she will be nominated. but i've told people certainly i will give her a fair hearing. i do think that the underlying issue here is people have seen her far more as a political operative and not a principal. >> jimmy williams joins me now from our d.c. bureau with more on why this fight over rice matters. so it was written in the chicago times hillary clinton preferring john kerry. hilary is not close to rice who is tough but not the friendliest person. hilary's brief comment recently that rice had done a great job was considered underwhelming and tepid. if that's true, jimmy, how does john kerry compare to her personality? >> i think what you're seeing here, this has
about solving this problem. >> but of course, it takes two to tango, so where does president obama stand? >> we can probably solve this in about a week. it's not that tough. >> it's not that tough. he's absolutely right about that. but we heard early this evening that the president and speaker boehner did speak late today on the phone, so that's good news, but in this case, they need face time. they need to spend real time face to face. even democrats think the president needs to do more in person work on this. >> the president is not somebody who he's prioritizing evenings with his family instead of going down and having a bourbon on the rocks with some of the congressional folks. >> sometimes though, you need to do to bourbon like when the country needs you. bourbon, beer, wine, whatever, after a couple of drinks, the president and boehner could you know, pull a simpson. >> the lasso again, then the horse. the cowboys ride. the cowboys. >> that's the special beer that you would drink to get you to dance the gangnam style. president obama and john boehner did the gangnam style, your app
with congressional leaders started a few weeks ago really with president obama calling for that $1.6 trillion in additional tax revenue over 10 years that you just heard about from john boehner. treasury secretary tim geithner argues that you can not raise enough revenue to reduce the deficit by only doing the loopholes and the tax breaks. and that is the major priority for republicans in this but some senior republican aides said they believe along with spending cuts, compromise would generate about a trillion dollars in new tax revenue, possibly from in parting those tax deductions. bill: where do we go, huh, martha? martha: good question. bill: congressman that broke ranks on one item is with us in 25 minutes. today he has a strong message directed at the white house and president obama. congressman tom colatosti out of oklahoma a bit later here on "america's newsroom.". that is 22 minutes away. martha: we brought you this breaking news on friday and now there's new fallout from that horrible train derailment in new jersey. remember these pictures? emergency officials closed schools now in

and obama are still there. there are times the though even this week that it will get frustrated and stop talking to each other. i'm not sure if they're talking today or taking the day off. obama said yesterday that this could get done in about a week. i think he might be right. republicans see the writing on the wall when it comes to tax increases. what they're interested in now is making sure they get spending cuts to go along with the tax increases. when obama put his additional offer, he said $1.60 trillion in tax increases and we will delay the spending cuts until next year. that was the initial offer. republicans want to make sure that the spending cuts go up and become more immediate. considering that obama has been open to spending cuts in previous negotiations and says he is open to it now and republicans have changed from where they were a year ago when it comes to tax increases, i think it will not take too much to get their, although there are still obstacles. host: the $1.60 trillion and $800 billion are the opening numbers. where are we with those numbers now. have those num

place in november 2008, a week after the election. obama won the white house. but gays and lesbians lost the right to marry in california. >> we're trying to figure out what we do next. then we thought about the idea of a possible legal challenge to proposition 8, and serendipitously, a friend of my wife's came by the table. >> the friend suggested they would find an ally in her former brother-in-law who turned out to be ted olsen, a towering figure in the conservative legal movement. so that stunned you, right? >> yes, it more than stunned me. it stunned me, but i said if this is true, this is the home run of all times. i mean, the idea that ted olsen, this arch conservative, the solicitor general for george bush who had argued bush v. gore and basically put me in bed for a couple days, i was so depressed after bush v. gore, was interested in gay rights. i thought, let's check it out. >> didn't you have any doubts about ted olsen? >> you know, they say that politics makes strange bed fellows. you don't have a stranger bed fellow than me and ted olsen. >> i was skeptical. >> chad griffin
much for being with us. we will be back in just a minute with this week's "face the nation" flashback. ,,,,,,,, >> schieffer: so after a bitter and long campaign, there they were in the oval office, mitt romney and barack obama, not the first time it's happened, and that is our "face the nation" flashback. >> good luck. >> schieffer: it's become traditional for presidential winners and loseiz to get together after the election. sometimes it goes well. sometimes it doesn't. when george bush beat al gore in the bitter campaign of 2000, oit going president clinton invited bush over for a two-hour session. but bush's meeting with al devoir, the man he beat, lasted only 15 minutes. brush said he had to get back to texas for a christmas party. when richard nixon beat hubert humphrey, there was a certain been there, done that, feeling when he invited humphrey of free to chat. >> i recall in 1960 after losing a very close election that president-elect kennedy could me when i was here in florida and history repeat itself. so i know exactly how you feel. >> thank you very much. >> schieffer: af
of syria. the ap reporting syria has been moving around chemical components in the last week. secretary of state clinton is underscoring president obama's warning that if the syrian government uses chemical weapons, the u.s. will take action. there's no evidence they've done more at this point than move the components around and it could be a bluff but officials believe they have access to several hundred missiles that could carry chemical warheads. we're back after the break. >>now let's get some real news.

attachment the nomination will come in the next two weeks along with the president's pick for secretary of state. on that matter the u.n. ambassador susan rice is considered a likely choice to replace secretary clinton. today president obama expressed confidence in her despite strong opposition from some in the g.o.p. more on that coming up inside fox report. meantime, bloomberg news is reporting after an interview with the president that he is considering the vogue editor and chief for ambassador to either the united kingdom or france. those are the kind of alabamaships that go to big donors she has been one of the top political supporters and fundraiser. asked jay carney about this report today he neither confirmed or denied. the nfl player who murdered his girlfriend and then killed himself apparently spent some time before the crime at another woman's apartment. details on that and what his own mother says she saw him do on the day that ended in blood. and word police here in new york city have now caught the suspect who is accused of pushing somebody right in front of a subway. and
. it could block her promotion has secretary of state if president obama -- the food fight over rice not so much. >> susan rice misled the american people. she didn't tell them the truth despite the evidence that's available to her. >> what's the other big story of the week? susan rice where they are wrongfully attacking a person who has done nothing wrong. >> the republican smear campaign continues as more senators pile on. >> was the coverage fair to rice? joining us now in new york is kelly. kelly, isn't it odd for the press to beovering a nomination that hasn't happened based on closed door meetings between susan rice an senators where we don't know what was said? >> in a word, yes. it's very odd. it's not odd if you look at it through the lens of some of the partisanship and the partisanism in the coverage. originally we had fox news really trying to push this cover up and turn it into a big election related scandal. the petraeus story got more coverage than should have in an era that we have the economy and americans out of work. this is the next leg of that with the conservative medi
, but it was the first time that the two men have spoken in a week. for the latest on these stalled negotiations, we turn to fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry for the report. >> trying to lay blame for stalled budget talks on republicans, president obama today wratcheted up pressure on boehner. >> nobody wants this done more than me. >> for the first time, plan for massive spending cuts from going over the fiscal cliff warning business executives, the economy could take another hit if republicans decide to extend just to middle class tax cuts to avoid the cliff for now and come back next year with more leverage to tie spending cuts and medicare reform to another hike in the nation's debt ceiling. >> we're not going to play that game next year. if congress, in any way suggests they tie negotiations to debt ceiling votes, and take us to the brink of default again as part of a budget negotiioion, i will not play that game. >> republicans held their meeting with small business owners and denied they are trying to punt until next year. >> i'll be here. i'll be available at any moment to sit do
criticism of president obama and susan rice over the september 11th attacks in bengha benghazi. they got a vote of confidence at a cabinet meeting this past week. >> susan rice is extraordinary. couldn't be prouder of the job she's done. >> she appears to be the top candidate to replace hillary clintons a secretary of state. but could gop opposition change that. joining me is adam shif who said it's unfair to go after rice for information given to her by the cia. so your take on her chance of being approved by the senate. is this worth it to the president? >> i think she would be an extraordinary secretary of state. he ought to go forward and nominate her. it wouldn't be a slam dunk, but she's a strong candidate and would be confirmed. and when you look at the criticism of her, it's so completely unjustified. no one is critiquing her job as ambassador where she organized the sanctions on iran. where she went after and depose moammar gadhafi. she's had a phenomenal record and the only criticism of her is she replied on talking points provided by the intelligence community. that seems to m
